AB wants to stem prostitution

Top cop asking for tougher action

by state attorney and Jax judges

Atlantic Beach Police Chief
David Thompson is trying to crack
down on prostitution with the help
of the city commission.
Prostitutes with five and six con-
victions are getting out of jail with-
in as little as 60 days in some cases,
Thompson said at a commission

meeting Monday even though a
third and subsequent violation is a
felony charge.
The police department has.been
responding to prostitution com-
plaints for several years, the major-
ity of them coming from the
Mayport Road area, according to
Thompson asked the commission
to consider drafting a resolution to

performances and activities included a flutist, drummer, Chinese paint-
ing, belly dancing, karate, and weaving.

the state attorney's office or the
judges that hear the cases asking
for stronger penalties.
"The police department has
made successful cases against mul-
tiple violators, but the offenders
have been routinely released back
into the community with minimal
penalties," he said in a report.
Thompson explained there are
contributing factors as to why
there is not more strict enforce-
'For example, if a prostitute is
arrested for a third or subsequent
time, the officer has to list the

charge as a felony or it will be list-
ed as a misdemeanor. Also, the
state attorney or a judge can
reduce the charge.
Because of these factors,
Thompson requested that the com-
mission get involved by contacting
the state attorney and judges.
"If we keep doing the same thing,
the same way, we're going to get
the same results," he told the com-
City Attorney Alan Jensen
advised that he will first contact
State Attorney Harry Shorstein,

Sick raccoons are

threat to pets here

Animal Control departments in
St. Johns and Duval counties are
asking residents to update their
pets' shots after a distemper out-
break among raccoons in northeast
Paul Studivant, animal control
manager for St. Johns County, said
last week that residents have
brought several sick raccoons in to
the new Pet Center on Straton
Several calls about sick raccoons
have also been received at the
Beaches, according to Atlantic
Beach Police Chief David

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission announced that the
outbreak was canine distemper -
not rabies.
But officials are cautioning pet
owners to update both distemper
and rabies vaccinations for their
pets, especially dogs. It is routinely
given as an annual vaccine.
"We believe that people need to
assure that their pets have up-to-
date shots to protect them from
this disease," Thompson said.


Police reported an increase in
crime at the Beaches during 2006
over the previous year.
Although some crimes have
deceased -for example, violent
cime in Atlantic Beach has gone
down since last year -the total
number of criminal incidents in
each city has gone up.
Atlantic Beach Police Chief David
Thompson attributes some of the
statistical increases to more drug
and prostitution busts which have
led to more arrests, he said. In addi-
tion, the Atlantic Beach police
department does have more officers
on patrol, he said.
Thompson also said that compar-
atively over the last five to 10 years,
crime has actually decreased in

Atlantic Beach.
In Jacksonville Beach, the sexual
battery rate has decreased, but the
number of burglary and larceny
reports have increased, according to
police. Jacksonville Beach police
had no explanation for the
In Neptune Beach, the greatest
crime increases were also seen in
burglaries and larcenies.
The city of Atlantic Beach has
also seen the greatest increase in
burglaries and larcenies.
Thompson said that a new trend
has emerged that he refers to as "car
hopping," where suspects are find-
ing random vehicles that are left
unlocked and breaking into them.
Neptune Beach Police Chief
David Sembach said many crimes
could be curbed by people locking
their car doors.

AB gives Selva Marina

first nod on development

An unidentified paw print at Jacksonville
Beach's Paws Park for dogs is measured
and preserved. Some park users have
reported seeing a large cat in the area. A
bobcat is suspected, according to park
users. See story A-3

JB cops each assigned
suspect during sweep

Jacksonville Beach Police last week net-
ted over a dozen arrests during a sweep of
suspects wanted for the sale of illegal
Photographs of the suspects were dis-
tributed during a briefing and officers
were each assigned one suspect.
The sweep targeted a 20-block area
where most of the suspects either lived or

After two and a half hours of pub-
lic comment and discussion, the city
of Atlantic Beach agreed to transmit a
request to the state regarding the
land use change of a portion of the
golf course at Selva Marina County
The transmittal is the first of many
steps in a process to amend the city's
future land use map, changing a por-
tion of the golf course from recre-
ation and open space to residential
and low density use. The Club has
plans to sell the portion of land for
future development, although noth-
ing has been finalized, club officials
said, in order to raise funds for a new
The Club needs to increase mem-
bership to remain operational,
according to President Alan Ennis,
explaining money from the land sale
will be used to improve the club facil-
Several state agencies, including
the Department of Environmental
Protection, the Department of
Transportation and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, will review the request
and then submit formal comments to

the city.
At that point, the city has the
opportunity to decide if it wants to
approve a change, and there will be
another public hearing.
However, more specific develop-
ment plans will be reviewed before
the land use change becomes final,
according to Community
Development Director Sonya Doerr.
Several residents spoke before the
commission sharing their opinions
about the request as well as the
Club's conceptual plan, which pro-
poses approximately 100 units to be
built on the property although the
plans are not definitive, according to
Mike Freed, an attorney for a group
of residents in Selva Linkside II told
the commission that more facts are
needed in order to submit the
"You don't know what the plan is,"
he said. "In short, we don't know
whether the facts are presefit that
would justify a change to the comp

the Club should be responsible for its
own financial problems.

SMailbox biz booming in Ponte Vedra

When it comes to rowdy, obnoxious games that teenagers
..-.. like to play, the phrase "History repeats itself" certainly
i applies.
It appears that some youngsters in Ponte Vedra have been
i' -- indulging in one of America's favorite pastimes: the ole'
mailbox baseball.
You know, the game where you hang out of the window
of a moving car (that a friend is driving, of course) and try to hit mail-
Sboxes with a baseball bat?
At Monday's meeting of the trustees for the Ponte Vedra Municipal Service District (MSD),
some Ponte Vedra residents complained that they've had some trouble keeping their mailboxes
in tact.
Those who have the traditional wood or metal mailboxes, as opposed to brick or concrete ones,
continue to be the primary targets no matter how many times they are replaced.
"I'm on my fifth one," said Trustee Bill Donovan.

Murder at Matanzas
Author Vic DiGenti, a Ponte Vedra Beach resident and for-
mer executive at WJXT, Jacksonville's public broadcasting
television station, recently received an award for his murder
mystery, "Matanzas Bay," a book he said "should be familiar
[because of its title] to people in this area.
"It won the Bancroft prize at the First Coast Writers
Festival," DiGenti said. "So I was really excited when I heard
it had won that prize because a lot of great people have won
it over the years. Hopefully this means a big push in my
career. We'll see."

Finding the address is half of the fun.
The Jacksonville Public Library System has been working hard
to get patrons to take an online customer survey that was intro-
duced in February.

tem will provide,statistical and comment reports to analyze cus-
tomer needs.
To spread the word, staff wore buttons that said "Take the sur-
vey!" and distributed bookmarks with the web address for the sur-

"The Selva Marina Country
Club is responsible for their own
internal affairs and that's where
they should solve their prob-
lem," said Joseph Meehan.
While some residents have
been outright opposed to sub-
mitting the request to the state,
many residents have said they
are not against development
and recognize that the Club
needs to do something in order
to remain a part of Atlantic
"The Club is a resource of
civic and cultural importance,"
said Dee Reiter.

sioners that "you are not sold a

selling a portion of the golf
Ennis said that although there
are some alternatives that the
Club could consider, "this gives
us the best chance for success."


Cont. from A-1
Distemper is a neurological
disease that infects foxes, coy-
otes, skunks and unvaccinated
dogs. It is harmless to humans,
according to authorities.
The disease is spread when
animals have direct contact with
body fluids or droppings from
an infected animal, the releases
Local Florida Fish and Wildlife
officials do not know the cause
of the outbreak, but one news
release said it is always present
in the environment.
It is more likely to occur and
to spread when raccoon popula-
tions are large or concentrated.
Symptoms include the dis-
charge of fluid from the nose
and eyes, a rough coat, an ema-
ciated appearance, and unusual,
disoriented behavior.
As the disease gets worse, ani-
mals may become aggressive if
approached too closely. The dis-
ease is usually fatal to animals
that contract it. Residents can
keep raccoons away by feeding
pets indoors or bringing feedigig
bowlsaindoors'once they are fin-
ished eating.
Securing garbage cans and
their lids can also discourage
raccoons. Officials also warn res-
idents not to feed raccoons.
Residents who encounter sick
raccoons on their property can
call their local animal control
Studivant said he's been
receiving two to three phone
calls a day about sick raccoons
for the past six months. One or
two calls a week is normal, he
Waves of distemper outbreaks
are rather common and will usu-
ally fade away on their own, he
"It will work itself out,"
Studivant said.
Pet owners can administer dis-
temper vaccinations themselves,
Studivant said. The shots can be
found at most animal feed stores
and some pet stores, he said.
In Atlantic Beach anyone with
a sick raccoon in the yard,
should call city Animal Control
at 247-5866.
Jacksonville Beach has also
had sick raccoons reported and
may be reached at 247-6167.
In Neptune Beach, animal
control may be reached at 270-

Big cats reported at JB dog park

Big cat paw prints found at
Jacksonville Beach's dog park,
Paws Park, are giving some visi-
tors pause.
At Paws Park in Jacksonville
Beach, dogs may run unleashed
and a chain link fence separates
the large breeds from the small-
er dogs.
But recently, the fence kept
another unwanted visitor out of
the small dog area, according to
park users.
Some dog owners have report-
ed seeing a large cat believed to
be a bobcat or a Florida panther
pacing back and forth as dogs
frolicked in the park boundaries.
Janet Folsom, who participat-
ed ,in the development of the
park, said she was told by fellow
park patrons that the big cat was
observed more than once "run-
ning up and down the fence in
pursuit" of the two dogs.
"It paid no attention to the
people," she said.
Folsom and her husband
Lance contacted the Fish and
Wildlife Commission on March
3 to report the incidents. They
also notified the city's animal
control officer.
The couple posted signs at the
parking warning patrons of the
sightings and put down soil to
be able to photograph the paw

inches in width were later spot-
ted in the same area as a dead

Folsom said. "It was a large

They brought the digital
images to the Jacksonville Zoo
to compare the tracks found at
the dog park with animal prints
positioned along the zoo's con-
crete path.
Wildlife officials said the like-
lihood of a panther roaming the
area was slim.
"It would be a rare occasion to
be a Florida panther unless
someone had an illegal exotic
animal for a pet and released it,"
Lt. Brian Lambert Tuesday.
"They are not normally in
this area and there are very few
in existence, less than a few

and deer.
Lambert, who works for the
law enforcement division of the
Fish and Wildlife Commission,
said the wildlife experts were
notified of the possibility of a
big cat on the prowl.

64-gallon toters are also avail-
There are also other options.
If a person is not capable of get-
ting their waste to the curb, the
sanitation truck drivers will
retrieve it from the side of a citi-
zen's residence, Hanson said.
Citizens need to notify the city
if they need this service.
Hanson also explained that
the "yellow bag" option is no
longer being considered, after
some citizens had inquired
about it. That option would
have required residents to bag
excess waste in yellow bags that
were purchased from specific
retailers. The semi-automated
option allows for excess waste
collection as long as it meets city
regulations, Hanson said.

The Leader's Opinion

Official arrogance

is appalling practice

If you own property here, you pay taxes to the Florida
Inland Navigation District (FIND), a special state tax dis-
trict responsible for management and maintenance of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
The authority takes your money. Taking your input on
policies and operations is not as readily done.
FIND is considering releasing an easement in
Jacksonville Beach by Beach Marine. Several local officials
are opposed to such a release. Registering their opposition
has proven to be tough, however.
At a meeting last month in Stuart, FIND commissioners
voted unanimously to consider the request at the March
23 meeting to be held at 9 a.m. at the Town Council
Chambers, 1 Sewell's Point Road in Martin County. That
means a 250+-mile trip each way, taking nearly four hours,
to speak on an issue relevant to our community.
FIND staff says deferring the decision until a local hear-
ing can be held is impossible. We disagree.
Whether you support or oppose the marina easement
release, you should not have to travel hundreds of miles to
have a say in the deliberations. Failing to provide a more
convenient locale for a hearing is arrogant and wrong.
A local hearing on this local matter should be planned.

Government funds help agencies

To the editor.
At a recent budget presenta-
tton before the St. Johns County
-commissioners there was discus-
sion of the amount of money
:received by independent agen-
cies (not-for profits) who pro-
.vide services to county residents
:on behalf of the county.
: Perhaps some background on
lthe process would be useful in
deciding' the worthiness of
Aiunty funds in providing these
Back in the day when we
,vere a much smaller county,
population-wise, community
nonprofits would petition for
T~hding directly from the Board
of County Commissioners.
There were no particular guide-
inies other that an expressed
To provide better structure
njid oversight, a Health and
:.iuman Services Advisory
Council was established; initial-
ly there were two councils -
pne for mental health services
and the rther tor sociaser\-ices.'
,fhey were later combined.
The idea was for the council
tor advocate for these agencies to
receive county funding after
determining the worthiness of
the agencies' requests. The rec-
6mmendations of the council
came after thorough vetting by
application and interviews.
The level of funding provided
by the county since 1990 has
remained essentially unchanged
just over $1 million.
What this money purchases
is what. has commonly been
called the "community safety
net." These funds are not a
donation to a charity! These
funds provide the local match
for greater state and federal
funds. Sometimes the funds are
seed money to sustain an
agency with startup programs. I
can think of no example when
the county's contribution was
the entire amount required to

deliver service by an agency.
Through the years there
have been changes in philoso-
phy and process. In some quar-
ters there exists the thought
that the county needs to
"wean" these agencies off of
county funding. That suggests
that the services being funded
would somehow go away.
Perhaps in a utopian view
there would be no poverty, no
drug/alcohol abuse, no hunger,
no domestic violence or sexual
assault, no substandard hous-
ing. In this Utopia, all families
would have all they need to live
safely and well and all elders
would be surrounded by loving
families eager and able to care
for them in their frailty. It
would be a world of no broken
bodies or broken spirits. But
we are not there yet.
This year, 17 agencies .have
responded to the county's
request for proposals to provide
services for the county's priori-,
ties. Most offhe requests are for'
local ii'ach'i-moii 'i*hicii will!
leverage the county's contribu-
tion in order to deliver the serv-
ices. Many such federal and
state grants require a local
match to indicate support. The
county is, in fact, purchasing
these services to be delivered
countywide through the efforts
of the agencies at a bargain
price! This is an excellent exam-
ple of prudence and proper
oversight by the county.
All who work in the social
service sector are constantly
seeking new and diverse
avenues of support. Local gov-
ernment must. be .part of the
funding mix. Failure to do so
would create more expensive

Rich's criticism was appropriate

To the editor:
Ben Rich was right! It was
HOURS after the police were
called before the first officers
entered the school at
Columbine. By that time, it

was all over. The police are not
immune to criticism, just like
everyone else.

Bad drivers, not bad design problem in AB

To the editor:
After reading about the
50K "fix" for the "sharp
angle" at Ocean Boulevard
and Seminole that Rick
Carper and Dezmond
Waters think is a safety
hazard," I was dumbfound-

Anyone who cannot make
a left -hand turn from
Ocean to Seminole should
have [his or her] driver's
license -revoked or eyes
The speed limit is 25 MPH

and the traffic is minimal.
There must be something
else Atlantic Beach can
focus their money on for
"real" improvements.

Beach Marine owner seeking answers

To the editor:
Your March 9 article regard-
ing Beach Marine requires
clarification, and also raises
some questions:.
1. How will this release
"impact future develop-
ments"? The Florida Inland
Navigation District (FIND) has
been waiting six months for
an answer.
2. The request is a partial
Release, not a total release of
.'the easement. .. .
3.~ Where elis do i\e' link the
terms "public access"'" and
"public purpose" when speak-
ing of privately owned proper-
4. The City of Jacksonville
Beach has plenty of authority
to regulate upland develop-
ment. Federal and state agen-
cies have jurisdiction over the
inland waterway and sub-
merged lands.
5. Our offer (opposed by

Jacksonville Councilman Art
Graham and Jacksonville
Beach City Manager George
Forbes) will extend the naviga-
ble area at the boat ramp from
65 to 80 feet. We also restrict
the four marina docks across
from the ramp from extend-
ing north, and provide slips
for transient boaters.
6. Why didn't councilman
Graham go public prior to the
Dec. 7t meeting (held in
Jacksonville) ,.....of...... the..
Jiacksorville- \ Waterway ;
Commission?' The'JWCvoted -
10-1 in favor of the release.
7. When and with whom
has Forbes "communicated
with the Taylors' legal team"?
Forbes has been unwilling to
meet with us. We asked
Graham to set up a meeting
and he has failed to do so.
8. Why didn't Graham ask
us to join the discussion he
had with the Beaches Watch?

9. How will this release be
"to the detriment of the pub-
lic good"? Since September
2006, opponents have been
long on rhetoric and short on
10. If Graham and Forbes
are trying "to make sure the
public access is protected",
then why haven't they
worked to fix the broken col-
lapsed bulkhead that has elim-
inated over 30 waterfront pub-
lic, parking. spaces? ..i. ,-. .. ,,
Why dtdm't Ga~aha:iinahd:L'.5
Forbes push for public parking
under the new Beach Blvd.
Bridge? Why haven't Graham
and Forbes ever approached
me during the last 12 years
about acquiring land adjacent
to the boat ramp in increase
"public access"?

Oversight is our responsibility as citizens

To the editor:
Congressman John Mica
responded to my request to
support the troops. He
requested continuing input,
oversight, to his office.
One year ago, January 11,
2006, the Congressional sup-
port of the troops was
affirmed by letter from Mica.
Substantive elements of his
desire to protect the troops
are quoted below.
"The legislation approved
$441.5 billion for defense
programs so that our men
and women in uniform are
provided the resources and
equipment they need to
complete their mission and
return home safely."
Serious issues remain for
meeting the needs of our
overextended reserve forces

and their families that hope-
fully can be addressed in
In closing Mica wrote.
"As we begin a new session
of Congress in 2006, please
let me know if I can be of
further assistance on this or
any other military or veter-
ans issues. Be assured, I will
continue working to ensure
our country keeps its com-
mitment to those who serve
and sacrifice for our coun-
SCongressman Mica expect-
ed a portion of the 441.5 bil-
lion would be used to pro-
vide and maintain hospital
facilities for our troops. By
copy of this document we
are reminded that oversight
is the responsibility of all cit-
izens. The reported level of

service provided to our
injured troops at Walter Reed
Hospital does not appear to
satisfy the commitment
Congressman Mica made.
Solace is not provided by
appointment of a blue rib-
bon commission after the
fact. Certainly it is not the
result that Mica expected.
The House of
Representative appropriated
the funds for the troops,
including supporting injured
men and women.
Expenditure of the necessary
funds is out of the hands of
Congress other than the
Oversight is always citizen

Ahoy, Kilroy

"Kilroy was here." That's a bit
ofgraffiti which may evoke World
War H better than any other
words, apart from "Hit the deck!"
(Navy parlance for getting out of
bed or "Duck!"). The Kilroy claim
.allegedly originated when James
Kilroy, a Massachusetts shipyard
inspector back then, began scrawl-
ing it on ships to prove that he
had been there and inspected the
n the hurry to get them
launched, the ships were not
painted, so they began sail-
ing worldwide with Kilroy's
inscription still visible (which
maybe explains why old vessels
are called rust buckets).
According to the legend, the
phrase became a rallying cry
and morale booster far and
wide as U.S. servicemen (and
women?) reinscribed it in their
travels on mess halls, latrines,
tanks, planes, boats, etc. The
saying was usually accompa-
nied by a simple cartoon
depicting Kilroy as a wide-eyed
character whose nose and
hands were resting atop a
fence. He became the symbolic
Super GI, present everywhere.
To me, the practice sorta cre-
ated a new order in the armed
forces: "Write face!" Through
constant repetition, the caption
and drawing soon appeared in
incredibly diverse locations,
including, reportedly, the Great
Wall of China, the Arc de
Triomphe in Paris, and even in
the dust on the moon. I never
spotted it (in more recent years)
on.theArc or the Great'Wall,.
butbkild; find itcon a notso-i I
greit wall at a men's rest'rodm-"
.in Hong Kong.
What brings the inscription
up now is a report in American
Legion magazine that someone
secretly etched it on the recent-
ly completed (in 2004)
National World War II
'Memorial in Washington, DC.
Apparently it will stay there as
a permanent part of the con-
flict's history. I agree with that
decision. In addition, consider-
ing the tremendous contribu-
tions made to national and
international security by our
Bold New City's military instal-
lations, I think it would be
appropriate to label local ships,
planes, and other military
equipment going abroad,
"Jacksonville Is Here!"
Seeing that in some foreign
country should give
Jacksonville civilian residents .
and armed services members a
touch of nostalgia for their
home port. That might happen
regularly, since our bases are, in
effect, among the world's
largest travel agencies.
Moreover, it would add to the
fame our town acquired as a
Super Bowl city. U.S. tourism
by foreigners has dropped since
9/11, so a vacation mecca such
as Florida could certainly use
more such visitors.
Vacationers in Jax can reduce
our tax.

Beavers have South Georgia county by the tail

ou can always find
someone having a
harder time than you
I wrote a few weeks ago
about all the stealing, cavort-
ing, sneaking, gnawing and
fussing that goes on around
our house. And that's just
from the squirrels.
Well, the people having a
harder time work for the
county road department in
Pierce County, way down in
South Georgia.
Their problem is with
beavers, those intriguing ani-
mals with lustrous brown fur,
little beady eyes, big orange
teeth, flat, scaly tails and an
inherent penchant for build-
ing dams.
"What they do, they'll
build a dam across the end
of our culverts and back the
water up," John Gill said by
telephone from Blackshear,
county seat of Pierce. "And
we've got to go out there and
dig them out. A day or two
later, you have to dig them
out again. Then they dam

/ -

them back up. It's just a con-
stant hassle with them."
It's Gill's job as road super-
intendent to see that the
industrious Beaver Brigade
doesn't take over the county
in a coup. He's not waving a
white flag yet, but he'd
appreciate advice on what to
County chairman Jim
Dennison agrees something
needs to be done, he told a
county meeting last week,
but let's not try that bounty
thing again.

Several years ago, the
county put a bounty on
beavers. It offered $25 to any
resident bringing in a beaver
tail, and the county averaged
buying about 200 tails a year,
reporter Jason Deal wrote in
The Blackshear Times.
The bounty, however, was
lifted in a budget crunch in
2003, "amid concerns that
'foreign' beaver tails were
being turned in for the
money," Deal reported.
"There's no way to go back
to the old system without
requiring beaver birth certifi-
cates," Dennison said.
When I asked Gill about
the alleged problem of non-
resident beavers, he said,
"They probably hauled some
of yours down here. That's
why you don't have any.. I
believe we've got them all
here in Pierce County."
Last spring, commissioners
discussed hiring trappers, but
nothing was ever done
beyond advertising and tak-
ing applications.
The beavers, meanwhile,

are still busy. When the rain
holds off, Gill said, "we can
work on them a while and
get them slowed down a lit-
tle bit. But as quick as the
rain comes, they crank up
their chainsaws and go to
Beavers, he said, just don't
like running water.
If you research beavers on
the Web, incidentally, you'll
find them described as help-
ful because they create wet-
lands, which are nice in their
place, and form habitats for
other critters. They're "gen-
tle, reasoning beings who
enjoy playing practical
jokes," one site said.
The commissioners and
Gill are not laughing. So if
you have a good idea about
now to end this problem,
call Gill at his office: (912)
By the way, John Gill, I
read that the Scottish Beaver
Network wants to reintro-
duce the European beaver to
Scotland. Reckon South
Georgia beavers would do?

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader


Despite appeals from city officials, the special
state tax district responsible for management and
maintenance of the Intracoastal Waterway is
moving ahead with plans to consider releasing an
easement in Jacksonville Beach.
Rose and Ken Taylor, owners of Beach Marine at
2315 Beach Boulevard, submitted an application
with the Florida Inland Navigation District to
clear the existing easement from the property
Jacksonville City Councilman Art Graham,
who represents the Beaches district, Thursday
asked the FIND commission to defer the decision
until the July 20 meeting in Jacksonville to allow
for community input.
"This would make things a lot easier for those
involved," he said. "You can hear first hand from
S. .those boaters that will be most impacted by
this decision and from the rest of the elected body
in this area."
Graham said he was "truly surprised" that the
FIND committee was considering the release
because it "is clearly not in the interest of the pub-
lic good."
S"Public access to the Florida waterways should
be your board's primary objective and is what I
consider best for the "public good"," he said.
Beach Marine owner Ken Taylor said the prop-
erty in question is privately owned and should
not be considered for. "public purpose."
"The request is a partial release, not a total
release of the easement," he said.
FIND's Executive Director David Roach said
FIND commissioners voted unanimously to con-
sider the request at the March 23 meeting as
"With that commission vote being made, I
Shave no authority to delay or defer this matter,"
he said.
The meeting will be held at 9 a.m. at the Town
Council Chambers, 1 Sewell's Point Road in
Martin County, Florida;
Graham said he plans to attend the meeting
, ,. ,with city officials from the cities of Jacksonville
Sand Jacksonville Beach.
Roach stated last month that members of the
commission were disappointed that city officials

Rejects request to
put off vote until July
meeting in Jax

opposing the release had not attended any previ-
ous meetings to clarify their positions.
In a Feb. 9 letter to commissioners, Graham
said "it is my position as well as the positions of
Senator Jim King, the cities of Jacksonville and
Jacksonville Beach that the easement should not
be released to ... Beach Marine and Rose & Ken,
Inc. in Jacksonville Beach."
Said Graham, "I thought that my letter was
very dear on how both the City of Jacksonville
aid the City of Jax Beach felt about the release of
the easement. We feel that it is premature."
"This being the case, I didn't think my atten-
dance to your meeting was necessary for you and
the commission to tell the applicant no," he said.
Ken Taylor also questioned why Graham did
not attend the Dec. 7 Jacksonville Waterway
Commission meeting regarding the release. The
commission voted 10-1 in favor of the request.
"I've spent my time and money to attend these
meetings," he said. "The least they can do is show
up." ;
Commissioners also asked city officials to
explain why they feel the proposed release of the
easement "will degrade or diminish" public
waterway access, noting that the Taylors have.
agreed to provide a 15-foot navigation easement
to widen the access to the boat ramp.
As part of the agreement, the Taylors also prom-
ised to limit the northern extension of four docks
within the easement to their current location and
committed to providing 10 percent or nine
slips within the easement for transient vessels.
"The Commissioners specifically want to krow
what else you ;think is required to maintain pub-
lic access in this easement area," Roach said.
Graham said officials are not against releasing
the easement as long as a master plan for the area
is in place because "until then no one knows how
much easement needs to be retained for the
future growth" of the boat ramp.

Former PV resident to demonstrate stir-fry

techniques at Ultimate Woman's Expo

F ormer Ponte Vedra resident
Yvonne Stephens will demonstrate
techniques from her cookbook,
"Amazing 7 Minute Meals," at this
month's Ultimate Women's Expo at
the Prime Osborn Convention Center
in downtown Jacksonville.
Stephens is
scheduled to
appear at the
Expo Friday
and Saturday
March 23 and
A culinary
science grad-
uate of The
Art Institute of Philadelphia, Stephens
will share her ideas about healthful
cooking using the stir fry technique.
Stephens and her husband, John, for-
merly operated The Fitness Zone in
Jacksonville Beach. She said one of the
concerns of her former clients was los-
ing weight or maintaining a healthy
"The most common reason people
say they can't cook healthy meals is
they don't have enough time,"
Stephens said in a phone interview
from her home in New Jersey.
She wrote "Amazing 7 Minute Meals"
to provide easy and delicious stir fry
recipes that anyone can prepare in

"Healthy eating isn't bland,"
Stephens said.
Stir frying cooks food quickly and,
according to Stephens, "results in bet-
ter taste, less destruction of nutrients,
and slower digestion."
Although stir frying is an Asian tech-
nique, it is adaptable to many other
world cuisines.
Stephens, who is a native of The
Netherlands, traveled to more
than 25 countries to learn about
food and do research for her cook-
4 book.
Stir fry recipes from the
S Mediterranean, the Caribbean,
S and Mexico are among those fea-
tured in "Amazing 7 Minute
A few examples are Hawaiian Pork
Stir Fry, Chicken and Ratatouille Stir
Fry, North African Lamb Stir Fry, and
Key West Shrimp Stir Fry.
Also in the cookbook are Asian dish-
es, such as the traditional Vietnamese
dish Bo Xao Ot, and chapters on stir
fry desserts and sauces.
"Amazing 7 Minute Meals" has infor-
mation about herbs, spices, hot pep-
pers, vegetables, fruit, pastas, and noo-
dles that are ingredients in the recipes.
Some are familiar to most American
cooks, but Stephens provides helpful
information to acquaint readers with
some of the more exotic ingredients in
the recipes.

She also includes a shopping list for
each recipe in the cookbook along
with estimated prep and cooking
times. There are helpful tips on cutting
and chopping techniques, creating
spice blends, and kitchen tools.
At the Ultimate Women's Expo,
Stephens will demonstrate the prepara-
tion of recipes from her cookbook. Her
hope, she said, is that people who
watch the demonstrations will be able
to say "I can do that."
The following are recipes from
"Amazing 7 Minute Meals." More infor-
mation is available at Stephen's website
Hawaiian Pork Stir Fry

Tackle challenging tile and grout with

Xtremeclean Tile and Grout Cleaning

WValk in any home today and you i\ill most likely' see
less wall-to-wall carpet as the flooring of choice. Hard
surfaces, such as ceramic tile, have become a very popu-
lar flooring alternative. Consumers install tile and grout
thinking the maintenance is less than carpeting.
However, they find that maintaining their tile, and espe-
cially the grout, is not as easy as it seems. Enter
Xtremeclean Tile and Grout Cleaning.
Owned by the ownership of First Coast Chem-Dry, the
Beaches area carpet and upholstery cleaning profession-
als, Xtremeclean is proud to offer the very best in clean-
ing technology to the area that they have serviced for
the past 14 years the Beaches. Tile and grout is espe-
cially popular here at the Beach and caring for it proper-
ly is so very important.
Using the finest cleaning solutions available,
Xtremeclean uses a five-step process to ensure that your
tile and grout are cleaned safely and effectively. A client
makes an appointment for a FREE on-site estimate and it
is at that time that a complete pre-inspection is done to
determine such things as the type of tile, the condition
of the grout and any areas of concern that the client may
have. Once the appointment is set for the cleaning, the
technicians at Xtremeclean have the choice of using
either an alkaline or acidic solution. Determining which
solution is best takes training and experience. Using the
wrong solution could irreparably damage the tile. Upon
arriving, the technician will tape off any ancillary areas
to ensure that any cleaning solution does not get on to
areas that it shouldn't. Xtremeclean has the utmost
respect for our client's homes and belongings.
The proper solution is then sprayed on the tile but.
more importantly, special consideration is given to the
grout lines. Once the solution has been applied, then a
special tool is used to brush the solution into the grout.
Grout is a very porous substance and it is of the utmost
importance that this step is not overlooked. Once this is
done, then the tile and grout are rinsed with a high-pres-
sure rinse anywhere from 500-1000 psi. Your tile and
grout are left clean and brighter.
However, in some cases, the grout lines are too soiled
or stained for a cleaning to make much of a difference.
This is where the professionalism and technical superi-
ority of Xtremeclean makes such a difference. This com-
pany has the capability to re-paint grout lines to almost
any color imaginable. The painting is done by hand and
only the highest quality paints are used. You can trans-
form any room by having the grout lines re-painted!
There is also no need to seal the paint once it's done and
it can last up to 15 years.
Once your tile and grout is cleaned, your technician
will highly recommend that the grout lines are then,
sealed to help prevent sta'ining and soiling. Sealing the'
grout is a protection that can help your grout maintain
its vibrancy for a lot longer than if it doesn't have that
layer of protection.
Xtremeclean Tile and Grout Cleaning cleans all types
of tile in every room of your home or business. Floors,
countertops, showers, and any place where there is tile
and grout that would benefit from this special service.
Many carpet cleaning businesses have added tile and
grout cleaning as an "add-on" service. However, at
Xtremeclean, there have been considerable investments
of time, money and training to ensure that this service
is not iiIst anotherr division of the sister comnanv. First

Novak and Clapp said that

all the difference.

"For us to have two teach-

Struggles continue for Nease baseball


Eight games into the 2007
season and the Nease High
School baseball team finds
itself in the one streak it
would rather not be in a
losing streak.
Following last Friday night's
3-0 loss to district rival Clay
High School, the Panthers are
still searching for their first
win of the season.
"We're a very inexperienced,
young team this year," first-
year Nease head coach Lee
Geiger said.
"We have only a few guys
that really have some experi-
ence at this level. We've just
been making 'inexperience'
mistakes, not making the big
plays and not getting those
big hits when we need them."
Starting pitcher Tommy
Kratzert had a rough start after
giving up a home run to
Clay's Kyle Hutchings, the sec-
ond batter of the game, and
put Nease down 1-0 early on.
Kratzert rebounded but gave
up runs to the Blue Devils'
Mike McCafferty and Ben
Carter in the third and fourth
innings, respectively, before
being relieved by Zach Gray,
who held Clay
scoreless --
throughout the
remainder of
the ballgame.

the win in the seventh with a
solo homer.
"We made two pitching mis-
takes and they tagged us,"
Brown said Saturday outside
the Fletcher dugout.
"Today, it was Thomas and
Miranda. The last time it was
[junior catcher Brett] Bozeman.
They are just that good."
Buchholz (4-1 in 1-6A) was
coming off an upset loss to
Sandalwood the night before.
Two days earlier, the Bobcats
were no-hit by crosstown rival
Gainesville High after Thomas
tossed a one-hitter through
seven innings.
"We grew up this week," said
24-year Buchholz head coach
Bob Smith on Saturday.
"We had to have this game."
Buchholz won the district'
title last year as the tourna-
ment's third seed. But the
Bobcats, who reached the
regional semifinals the last two
years, are shooting for the No.
1 seed this time around.
"I think it's important what
seed you get," added Smith,
"because the Nos. 2 and 3 are
going to be very evenly
matched and if you play [Nos.]
4 and 5 [in the district semifi-
nals], at least you've played
somebody who has spent their
No. 1 [pitcher]."
Fletcher sent its No. 1 hurler,
Sam Perry, to the mound
Saturday, and the senior right-
hander held Buchholz to one
hit over the first three innings.

Gators recover in time for the big dance

Today the SEC tomor-
row the world!

Will Florida coach Billy
Donovan find himself with no
more mountains to climb, or
x ill he be like Alexander the
Great ,Nhuliaminiii, Ali,
maybe) who wept because he
had no more worlds left to
conquer? Or will it be Tiger
Woods, whose many admirers
claim him to be the greatest.
The Gators may not be the
best college basketball team in
the country, but at this point
they'll have to do until some-
body proves differently. On
Sunday, Florida triumphed in
its last step before the NCAA's
big dance, in the SEC champi-
onship game, the same way it
polished off foes during the
regular Southeastern
Conference season. The Gators
not only defeated a fine and
hungry Arkansas team, they
just toyed with the
Razorbacks. The 77-66 final
score didn't tell the story. It
was a much more sound
defeat than that.
Arkansas went to the
Atlanta tournament poised for
an upset. One could feel it."
And the Razorbacks were in a



good position for one. At least
if they were playing an ordi-
nary team. The Hogs have not
had it easy this year, up and
down with their coach so
much on the bubble that if
he'd been in any more hot
water he could have taken a
bubble bath.
A late-season surge by
Arkansas saved Stan Heath's
job, or so goes the thinking
close to the situation. And
that surge pumped a lot of
emotion into the veins just in
time for the SEC title game
and all the marbles on the
The way the Razorbacks

knocked over Mississippi State,
81-72, on Saturday had to
sound an alarm for the Billy
Boys, who looked at one time
like they might turn into the
Billy Goats after a few sloppy
Gator fans probably don't
realize what a job Donovan
did to bring the team back to
its senses after a late-season
slump. That's the job of a
coach, of course, but some
cannot get it done. Everything
depends on the players.
As Donovan said during the
campaign, he has the right
kind of lads to get it done
regardless. They latched onto
the affirmative and eliminated
the negative, as the old
Johnny Mercer song went.
Who should get the most
credit amongst the Gators?
There's more to earning a No.
1 seed (a first-ever for Florida)
than just Joakim Noah and
MVP Al Horford, although
that duo would be the first to
come to fans' minds, trite as it
sounds, this NCAA bid is a
complete team victory.

Another Jaguar
flies the coop
So former Jaguars safety
Deon Grant signed on with

Seattle for $30 million. We
don't blame him. For that
kind of coin we'd sign with
Planters to walk around town
in that peanut suit, with or
without the monocle.
We all knew Deon was a
fine safety, but $30 million for
six years? If he comes back to
play the Jaguars we all owe
him an apology for not recog-
nizing his brilliance. Not just
on the playing field but in
Thirty million smackers
must make Wayne Weaver's
head spin like a Byron
Leftwich spiral. Here the
Jaguars owner is practically on
the street corner beating a
tambourine and passing the
hat while his staff plays Nearer
My God to Thee, and his cast-
offs are making enough
money to help save the old
mortgage. First Kyle Brady and
now Deon Grant.
Mr. Weaver should check
the Seattle books and see how
the Seahawks operate. Maybe
they have some magic that
would help save the Jaguars,
who, we are told, are as shaky
as a morning after.
Deon says there are no hard
feelings toward the
Jacksonville brass for putting

him up for adoption. Br'er
Rabbit had no hard feelings
about being thrown in the
briar patch, either.
Fans and media will miss
both Deon and Kyle, who did-
n't hit as big a jackpot with
only $5.3 million for two
years, but both of them did all
right. Both players had said
they wanted to end their
careers here with the Jaguars,
but the team's brass had other
Thirty million or a pittance
of a little more than five mil-
lion will buy both a lot of
Kleenex as they sob all the
way to the bank. Ain't pro
sports, wonderful?
You're getting old if you
remember when $30 million
would buy a franchise not just
a player.
The best news about the
Jaguars and their salaries
comes from Fred Taylor.
Fearless Fred will keep his
dough (from a recent contract
extension) right here, or at
least not in Seattle or New
England, like Kyle, so he
should be available if Mr.
Weaver has to hit him up for a
loan. It would be a nice ges-
ture for Brother Taylor to save
the franchise. Call it paying

the team back.
More good news from the
Jaguars: Taylor informs us that
Byron Leftwich, who has been
training with Fred down in
Miami, will be returning to
Jacksonville in April, many
pounds lighter in anticipation
of a great season.
Daily we are getting reports
on the progress of Lord Byron
in his comeback from last
year's injury. Teammates are
eager to praise the quarter-
back. That's good news for
incoming offensive coordina-
tor Dirk Koetter, who has
already gone on the record
informing us how great Byron
Jacksonville will be without
a lot of fan favorites when
things kick off next September.
But at least Donovin Darius
will be back and healthy. And
the slimmer Leftwich, better
than ever they tell us.
Maybe. there won't be a new
name for the stadium, but
with all the new coaches and
players signed through free
agency, they've sold us. We're
predicting the Jaguars will go
all the way this year.
With a better-than-ever staff
and a lighter quarterback, how
can they possibly miss?
